“If Calsberg could do skiiing holidays....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2011

This is the most fantastic chalet im ever stayed in. Mark and Emma are incredibly acomodating, the food exquisite and the chalet is beautiful. The hot tub is great to chill out in after a day at the slopes. We also enjoyed the games room downstairs.

I liked the honesty bar and just how chilled out the place was. We got an airport pick up and drop off and also enlisted the services of door step ski hire. Everything was fab!!

We'll be back!

Stayed April 2011, traveled as a couple

Enjoyed a lovely week with Mark and Emma in March. Chalet is lovely. Cosy, warm and welcoming and Mark's food is fantastic. Just what you want after a day on the slopes! Rooms are comfortable and well equipped.
Mark and Emma are great hosts and were happy to sort out any issues or questions we had during our stay (and indeed before). With 6 adults and 7 kids under 6 in our party we felt they handled the onslaught very well and would considered returning (if we haven't put them off for life!)
Chalet is a 10 minute drive to the main ski areas in Morzine though there is a smaller ski area not far from the chalet that is good for kids and beginners. The chalet has a boot room for storing all the ski equipment and plenty of space for personal belongings etc.
Local area of St. Jean is nice with a couple of very good restaurants that Mark and Emma are happy to book for you on their night off.

A lovely time. We went skiing and Mark and Emma helped us prepare our trip wonderfully, organising lift passes, lessons, equipment so we could maximise our time on the slopes. And their apres ski also great: the food was fantastic, rooms comfy and spacious, and hot tub outside the perfect way to wind down. We were made to feel very welcome, part of their family. I would definitely come back again.

This was our second weekend with Mark and Emma, and the ever growing family at the Farmhouse. Incredibly friendly, but also low key, hosts and make you feel very welcome at all times. They offer incredible value with huge en suite rooms, very comfy beds (we go to sleep as much as ski), and Mark delivers some fine food for a relatively modest outlay. The hot tub is a welcome addition this year for sore legs and bodies after a long day, but its a delight to sit outside gazing at the church when its minus 5 ! We love the location because it is quiet and escape, rather than the bustle of Morzine, and the pre-organisation of airport pickups saves loads of time and money when compared to queueing for hire cars at Geneva. Yes it's a short walk to local restaurants and bars, and the village closes relatively early at night - a bus stops outside the house to go up to the small ski station at Grande Terche - if you want a big night, then taxis to Morzine are the way.

We hope to come back in late spring for some walking and biking.

The Chalet was beautiful and comfortably furnished - the beds were so comfy and bath robes and slippers included.
The hospitality was faultless and the food was superb.
The mini bus service to and from the lifts everyday more than made up for not being ' ski in ski out' which we would normally choose.
A beautiful location in a fantastic ski area - hope to return again one day!

We only stayed the one night en route to another location but would definitely have stayed longer if we could! The welcome we received was great, Mark and Emma are really fab hosts and we felt very much 'part of the family'. Food was fab, room was perfect and company even better. Our airport transfers were also arranged by Mark and Emma. Couldn't have asked for more if we'd wanted - thoroughly recommended. Thanks guys (good luck with new addition this year!).

This chalet was superb, a small family run chalet with delicious home cooking and every comfort, the husband and wife hosts went out of their way to make everything right for us. Good sized bedrooms and bathrooms,
Useful for us to have own car to drive to and from ski lift but the chalet provides minibusing service (which we did not use)

All round highly recommended
